    This is not a corporate league. Most of the teams pulled national players from outside their companies to try to dominate. The organisers are not following the rules they set. This is not fair!

      Not only the organizers... the referees have been bias and one sided for yearsssss and it gets worse as they get older. They're comfortable with what they do. They cheat for their friends BLATANTLY and questioning their calls is a waste of time, you receive more illegal calls.

      I agree with having a corporate league with teams that comprise their employees only, or organizations that comprise their members only. Some of those teams are loaded with league players, which has tipped the playing field way over. Unfair.
